Benzo Buddies members forced to give away belongings, live like hermits, to remain in cult

Giving away belongings
« on: November 13, 2020, 08:26:44 pm »

I’ve noticed a few people (e.g. Baylissa) who report that they gave away a lot of their belongings while in withdrawal but have little memory of that time. For me, I’ve noticed the urge to get rid of a lot of my stuff – I think it stems from getting easily overwhelmed and wanting to simplify my life. I actually think it’s a good thing because I live in a small apartment with minimal storage space. Benzo withdrawal is helping me realize what I value most in life and most often that is not material objects. I have way too many clothes and was never able to part with them before, but now it comes easy. I plan to clean out my storage unit this weekend!

Simplifying my life makes me feel good, when I’m distressed I’ll often pick a closet to clean out. I get a feeling of freedom from the weight of too much stuff and those I donate to can benefit as well.

I have been doing this too. Feels right to be clearing the junk out while clearing meds out of my body. Also makes me want to cut my hair. 😂

I give stuff away all the time but its mostly because I think I’ll never heal or make it through this alive to use them.

I want to help you, John, but I don’t know how. Psychiatry has no other cure besides these drugs that led us to this state. The more we took them, the more sick we became.

The worst thing is that both psychiatrists and patients themselves often do not understand that this is not a disease, but comes from their medicines.
Psychotropic drugs are scary things that they do to people. You have a drug disorder, John, caused by chronic brain damage from psychotropic drugs

Yeah, i am about done with all this. I cant take any of this anymore
2 years now and my brain is mush. Cracks, squeezes, itches, spine squeezes, dozens of other side affects. i am losing all hope. . How the heck can you stay positive with all this horrendous , indescribable horror going on with us? the positive people are the ones who get relief and see improvements. I want peace and happiness. I trusted psychiatrists. I was only 15 when i was given effexor xr. Oh, it is safe they said. I was given prozac in the 3rd grade because i kept to myself. What quacks this medical industry is.

It is indeed an industry of great quackery John. I’ve had it shit in other ways. 21 months for me. It’s still a struggle. Wearing.

The only thing that in any works for me is to roll with it best I can. Acceptance is key for me now. Acceptance coupled with distraction, action, is even better. Sometimes hard for me to do.

You have been on psychotropics since early childhood it makes sense to me that you would feel the way you do. Your brain is trying to recalibrate. Give it time.

Thanks […]. I am trying. Ever since ECT while going through drug withdrawal i have so much damage, it is ridiculous.

Checking into psych ward

Im going to check myself into the psych ward for the 6th time since this happen.

At this point i dont care anymore. Im going to have them load me up on whatever even if it is benzos.

I am experiencing something terrifying in my head for nearly 2 years and im done. Racing and looping thoughts 24/7. No words to describe this torture. Im sick of people telling me its just severe anxiety. Im sick of just surviving to the end of the day and then having to do it all again tomorrow.

If your coming off benzos please for the the love of God dont take another drug. Going on remeron was the worst thing i could have done because i listened to stupid people on this website who were probably just mentally ill.

Peace out.

Do you realize that you are only making it worse? Do you want to get lifelong tardive extrapyramidal disorders from antipsychotics? You are at great risk. Read the side effects of the drugs you are about to take.

Psychotropic drugs can cause such physical pain that anxiety, tension and insomnia seem like nonsense. I went through this. Don’t be silly, don’t take neurotoxic poisons.

I had incredible stress last year. I was ready to go to a psychiatric hospital, anywhere, to stop it. Then, I could not sleep for 4 months and no one could understand what was wrong with me. We thought it was a strong anxiety. The biggest tragedy is that neither myself nor anyone else could understand that it was caused by benzodiazepines.

I was polydrugged by Reglan while in benzo tolerance/withdrawal. I had akathasia. I paced the floor like a patient at a psych ward and I survived.

It took Baylissa Frederick 3 years to get through. Read her book Recovery & Renewal.

Follow Michael Preibe of “The lovely Grind” on You Tube. He survived benzos AND antidepressant withdrawal.

It’s true. Taking other psychotropic meds while in benzo withdrawal complicates it. Reglan is for migraines and gastroparesis, but it’s also an old antipsychotic from the 60’s. I learned all of this in hindsite. So, basically I was in Ativan tolerance and got a drug that was like Haldol. Just one dose. One time.

Look up Michael Priebe. He beat both benzos & an antidepressant. He’s very positive and motivating.

So sorry to hear of your suffering. It’s so hard. Hang in there.

Im experiencing something way worse than just physical pain. The mental is way worse than anything you can imagine. Brain racing and looping 1000 miles an hour 24/7 for 2 years straight and counting. 100s of mental symtoms all at once. Ive reached my breaking point.

I follow everyone. They werent this bad 24/7. I cant even distract for a second. The people as bad as me are 4+ years off and still suffering. There is no point in putting yourself through something like this

Question: Why are all Benzo Buddies members afraid of MSG? Answer: Cult brainwashing.

MSG sensitivity: What symptoms ? How do you eat to avoid it ?
« on: October 20, 2020, 12:14:48 pm »

[Buddie]

Like many in WD, MSG really messes with me. I learned this early on when I had Chinese food a few times during withdrawal, and INSTANTLY got a migraine aura, and dizziness/vertigo. I think back to when I was in acute withdrawal. It really fired up my symptoms. Now, it still affects me with headaches, dizziness and insomnia.

I’ve never really tried cutting it out 100%. I know there’s a lot of it hidden it processed foods, and it’s in a lot of food. I’d like to put 100% effort into cutting it out of my diet, but the list is long. It’s almost easier to say: “What CAN I eat to avoid MSG?”

What’s symptoms do you get from consuming MSG?
How do you eat daily to avoid it?

Back before my setback/cold-turkey when my only symptoms were GERD and 3AM cortisol surge, MSG would flare up my GERD. Now I avoid MSG like plague and dare not try. Honestly it’s not that hard to avoid MSG. There are even processed foods out there without it. They usually advertise it right on the box.

“One bad apple”

Alcohol in foods

Hi, I just ate an apple that had a little alcohol taste to it and now I’m afraid it will set me back a little.. Do such small amounts of alcohol have any impact on the gaba receptors?

Apples don’t have alcohol in them. You should worry about eating apples, they are very good for your overall health.

Thank you for your response, […]. Well there can be if the fruit is ripe/overripe. The yeasts can ferment the sugars of the fruit and produce alcohol.

Honestly, this should not be something you need to worry about. I ate a lot of fruit during my taper and recovery in an effort to eat cleanly.

Unless your apple was a mushy pile of fermented goo= I think you are getting a bit overly anxious. Not many people are going to pick up a fermented apple and manage to eat it. Animals do it fairly often and exhibit signs of intoxication but those are some seriously fermented fruits! It is much more likely that your apple was in the same container as a bad apple and took on some odor/taste that absolutely will not mess your system up. This is why they have the whole “one bad apple” saying = They quickly take on the icky odor/flavor of a nearby nasty one. It doesnt hurt you, it just makes for an unsalable product. Maybe just don’t eat the rest of it if it doesn’t taste right?

Was looking at the active ingredient of Frontline(isoprinil). It is used to treat fleas, lice, heartworm, mites, and who knows what else. Apparently it affects GABA receptors and that stuff has a half life of half a month.. Has anyone gotten that stuff on their skin? Were you alright?

Brainwashed cult member wants to activate DNR if she has to be intubated from COVID-19, fears being sedated worse than dying

If have you be intubated due to virus....
« on: March 25, 2020, 02:47:07 pm »

[Buddie]

So, let’s hope this doesn’t happen to any of us but I am very concerned about this.

If ppl need to be intubated they are sedated and paralysed apparently.

I am now sensitised to all meds and still tapering.

If they gave me Benzos it would be horrific as you are all aware and I get severe adverse effects to all meds have tried to relax muscles in last year including g hallucinations and terror.

I couldn’t lie flat even on Benzos doe to spinal problems and now even with legs up can’t lie on back.

What the hell are we supposed to do in these circumstances.

I have a DNR in place so not sure if that would prevent them from doing it?

If worked and didn’t cause terror would hope for morphine but unless they were to give me enough to put me out of my misery the effects of that would be horrific as even cocodomol causes my terror etc to get much worse due to allergic sensitisation.
